Have you ever seen the range of patterns created by designers 'Melly & Me'? If not, you simply MUST check out their site - so much delightful goodness!
Last week my sister Lauren and I had a crack at making Mrs Perkins and the results were quite impressive really. Lauren's sewing skills were pretty much non-existent so it took us waaaaay longer than it should have, but I really enjoyed spending time with her.
Unfortunately Lauren still needs to put her mane and tail on so I don't have a picture of her Mrs Perkins, but here is the one that I made:
The pattern was very easy enough to follow, however we obviously did something a little wrong as we had to alter her legs a little to make them more in proportion to her body. Other than that, and a small problem with the horns and ears being so small they were difficult to work with (not helped at all by my current hand problem), making Mrs Perkins has inspired me to want to buy another Melly & Me pattern. Now just to choose which one!
